MAJ (26/02/2014) Mémento Pratique du RadioAmateur V0.8.4

f4eed - petit mémo V4


voici une nouvelle MAJ de mon mémento pratique du radioamateur.

Je vais me répéter, comme d’habitude je n’ai rien inventé, j’ai simplement regroupé dans un document unique pleins de documents, de renseignements, trouvé ici et là sur internet. Le but étant de faire un document modulable, imprimable à loisir, et au choix.

Pas de grande évolution, ne cherchez pas la version V0.8.3 elle n’a jamais vue le jour 😉

Bref, c’est pour moi une mine d’or, pour mes sorties en portable, pour mes vacances, pas une bible mais une aide qui traite des sujets suivants:

  • Plan de bande IARU Région 1 (2 mètres)
  • Plan de bande IARU Région 1 (6 mètres)
  • Plan de bande IARU Région 1 (HF)
  • les fréquences pour mode numérique  (code couleur par bande)
  • les fréquences Pskmail
  • Les fréquences IARU pour le trafic d’urgence, et les réseaux connus
  • les fréquences des QSO Radioscoutisme
  • Activation RaDAR (Principe, Fréquences, log)
  • La diffusion du bulletin du Ref-Union
  • Abréviation CW
  • Les préfixes DXCC
  • Code Q
  • Canaux relais 28/50/145/430/1200
  • Les relais 28MHz
  • Les relais 50MHz
  • Les relais 145MHz
  • Les relais 430MHZ
  • Les relais 1200MHz
  • Les relais D-star (a titre indicatif)
  • Fréquences de réseau d’urgence FNRASEC/ADRASEC
  • Fréquences de réseau d’urgence IARU région…

RaDAR – Fair competition

ZS6BNE's Blog

There is nothing wrong with the idea that categories compete among themselves. Multipliers were built in to cater for difficulty but I see no problem that the contest results are published with individual categories in mind.
Much like my running sport I’ve been practicing for close on two decades, there are juniors, seniors, veterans, masters and great masters. They certainly would not be able to compete against each other. Prize giving is per group – 1st, 2nd and 3rd. etc. It gets more difficult with age, I know, I’m moving to the great master category – fast!

RaDAR – Being different

ZS6BNE's Blog


What makes the RaDAR contest different to any other. The requirement to move.

Sure it’s more difficult for some than others. Most field type contests allow set up 24 hours before the event.

I looked at this and thought there must be some other way of making amateur radio a little more exciting.

I started with one contact per kilometer moved proving the concept. See

Then it had to be made achievable by most hams and made it 5 contacts per distance moved depending on the medium.

RaDAR categories were defined to suit many different ways of practising RaDAR.

As we’ve mentioned, contests are only really measurements of our ability to take on whatever challenge and have fun at the same time.

Too many contests are the same, RaDAR needs to be and is different – RaDAR, daring to be different.

RaDAR – New horizons

ZS6BNE's Blog

Some very valid questions were asked in a recent mail sent to me and I will try to answer it as best I can.

When I think of RaDAR, I think outdoors, parks, nature, trails, low-carbon emissions, even SOTA.  Not to be too exclusionary, but I also think these events are designed to get people moving (for those that can).  

Absolutely, that is the essence of RaDAR and it’s good to see that the idea has been promoted worldwide the same way as it was originally intended. RaDAR does evolve though, getting better, changing through personal experiences and the sharing of ideas.

With that said, I don’t really understand lumping bikes in with cars and motorcycles.  I would think RaDAR would be encouraging self-propelled transitions in any way.

RaDAR is about movable amateur radio stations and includes any means that makes this possible. The general idea at the time…
